O sanftes Glühn der Berge

Language: German (Deutsch)

O sanftes Glühn der Berge
Jetzt sehe ich Sie wieder.
O Gott so zart und schön,
Gnadenmutter, in Himmelshöhn.
O neige Dich, o komme wieder 
Du grüßt und segnest - -
Der Hauch des Abends nimmt das Licht -
Ich seh's nicht mehr, Dein liebes Angesicht.

Oh soft radiance of the mountains

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Oh soft radiance of the mountains
Now I see her once more.
Oh God, so delicate and lovely,
Mother of Mercy, in the heights of Heaven.
Incline thyself, oh return,
Thou greetest and thou blessest - -
The evening breeze takes away the light -
I no longer see it, thy lovely face.
